When it comes to organizing an event, staffing is a crucial factor that can make or break the success of the event. Event planners and managers are often faced with the challenge of finding the right number of qualified event staff to help run their events smoothly. One solution that many event planners turn to is hiring temporary event staff, including flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and access to a wider talent pool. In this article, we will outline these three advantages in more detail to help you determine if using temporary event staff is the right choice for your next event.

What are the Main Advantages of Temporary Event Staffing

  • 1 - Flexible Staffing Additions When Needed Most
    In the hospitality industry, unexpected events and busy seasons can be a challenge for business owners. Fortunately, the temporary event staff is a flexible solution for those last-minute requests. Whether it's a restaurant with a sudden event booking, a caterer with a large party to feed, or an event venue with back-to-back holiday reservations, a reliable event staffing agency is readily available to provide qualified personnel. The best event staffing agencies have streamlined processes and emergency protocols in place to ensure quick and efficient responses to your needs. Once the event is over, business owners can rest easy, knowing that they won't have to deal with the burden of keeping extra staff employed until the next event.
  • 2 - Saves You Time & Money
    If your business only needs help on an occasional or seasonal basis, the expenses of hiring and training new staff members can accumulate quickly, making it difficult to justify. However, opting for temporary event staff can help your business avoid costs such as health insurance, payroll taxes, overtime pay, and paid vacation or sick time. Moreover, expanding your full-time team will require the HR department to invest time and money in various processes such as placing job advertisements, reviewing submitted resumes, interviewing potential job candidates, and then onboarding your hires, which may result in hiring someone who is not qualified for the position and then having to repeat the process. By requesting temporary event staff from an event staffing agency, most of these costs are absorbed by the agency, and you only receive one invoice to pay at the end. Furthermore, if you're not satisfied with any particular staff member's work ethic, the agency will replace them for you.
  • 3 - Top Quality Event Experience
    When searching for staffing partners for your hospitality needs, it's essential to ensure that the company you're considering has a rigorous vetting process for candidates. Reputable staffing companies carefully select only experienced individuals and may offer further training to guarantee service excellence and consistency. You should also check that their uniforms are well-trained and presentable. Furthermore, it's vital that they have a firm understanding of the specifics of high-end banquet service, which differs from restaurant service in various ways. They must be capable of setting up and breaking down events in off-premises settings and should always be proficient at working as a team.
